Frustrated 

Frus strate ed

Pronounce the first R.  This newswoman sounds like such a moron.

And can you say Library?  That has 2 R's in it as well.  Don't skip that first R.  It is not lye berry.

Preach it! Ugh! I can't STAND hearing people mangle words like that. My DH drives me up a wall when he say "nuke-you-lar" lol. I may be a grammar, spelling, and punctuation freak, but at least you know that I *had* to have done well in English class. ;)

I worked with a woman who would pronounce 'fiscal' as 'physical'.  In meetings with other managers and shit.

I was at a training this week where the presenter kept saying "expecially." I wanted to claw my ears off every single time.

Do you pronounce February correctly?

Sadly, I think that a lot of people would disagree on the proper pronunciation of February. I pronounce it with bot R's, while my DH pronounces it with a Y in place of the first R.

Okay. Never mind speech issues, dialects, regional pronounciations, just say the fucking word my way before I blow a blood vessel. Yeah, you might want to talk to someone for the benefit of your mental health, because it really isn't that serious.
